Wardrobe Wednesday - Just Peachy

Hi all! I apologize, I am still pretty behind in catching up on all of your lovely blogs. The past few days have been pretty stressful around here and my internet has been pretty shaky on top of it all. Anywho... it is new and beautiful day so I plan on enjoying the best I can. I am headed down to school today to visit Brian - I can't wait :] Maybe not seeing him for nearly a month is what is really getting me down.

Enough whining and mushy gushy stuff. Let's talk about this outfit, shall we? I just purchased this beautiful dress (and one more!) from the Ruche gift card I won on Aizzing's blog - Icing & Write. Thank you, thank you, thank you! This is one of my favorite dresses by far. Ruche has so many beautiful pieces and - may I add - at affordable prices! I was so excited to have the funds to make my first purchase :]

I love the bow and bright colors. This dress is perfect for spring and summer! I am not a major fan of yellow on me but I don't mind it at all paired with the coral in this dress :] I also think it will look cute with white tights or a cardigan to add some warmth on cold nights.

Outfit Details: Dress - Pretty in Peach Pleated Dress, Ruche | Bag - thrifted | Pendant - thrifted | Sandals - Unisa, DSW | Sweetpea - thrifted, tehehe, my favorite little accessory and partner in crime.

Alrighty. I am off to wear this dress out on a hot date with my man, tehehe. He is only a two hour drive a way... *wahh wahh. Thank goodness for Jim Croce's greatest hit cd to rock out to on the way down. Have a beautiful day you all!

  1. I love love how girly and feminine this outfit is from the pretty colors to the bow and the pleats! I also like how it presents the illusion of separates. Hope your week gets better! Enjoy your time with Brian!

    Hope your week starts to get better!

  21. 2 hrs away, that is dedication and love girl. but all worth it in the end and nice to drive and think. I thought it was a skirt/top not a dress, so that;s pretty nice, you don't have to worry about the top coming out of the skirt! (I hate when that happens). It is so pretty and i love the tie front. Also like the greenish tropical tint you have on the photos. Aw SweetPea, the most perfect and adorable accessory

  22. Have fun with Brian!!! ♥
    And I am obsessed with this dress! It reminds me of sherbet :) I have a similar style dress, but it has long sleeves (you may have seen it on the blog). Either way, I am so in love with the way it has similar pleating in the skirt. It's such a perfect twirly dress! And ugh, I can't get enough of those pussy bows. <--I hate saying that! I feel awkward, but fine, that's what they're called.
    You look absolutely lovely and I know Brian will think the same thing as soon as he sees you.
    P.s. I mailed your little package out the day before yesterday. :)

    1. Thank you! It was so good to see him. I missed him too darn much.

      I thought Sherbet too. I definitely thought Sherbet was spelled Sherbert and was too weirded out to post it as my title, haha. I think I have :] I had no clue they were called that - eeep. Whatever, they are cute as heck!!

      Aw, thanks Roni. He said he liked it :]

      The top is just too pretty! Thank you sooo much again.
